7:09 am
general james mattis, "mad dog" mattis as a possible secretary of defense. what can you tell us about him? >> well, it's no wonder donald trump is impressed with jim mat mattis. they share a lot of the same views about the military and foreign policy. since retiring in 2013, mattis has been critical of defense cuts, of announcing draw-downs in afghanistan in advance, and the u.s. de -- along with our approach to fi fighting radical jihadists. saying we have not been clear about defining or dealing with terrorists. but he is beloved by troops, the kind of general that would take christmas duty watch so younger marines with families could enjoy the holidays. women in the military may have issues with where he stands on women in combat. and if he is nominated by president-elect trump, he would have to get a congressional waiver because you have to be out of uniform for seven years to serve as defense secretary. >> someone else who might need a waiver. general david petraeus. mentioned as a possible secretary of state.
7:10 am
very different messages. >> very different messages, george. we don't know a lot about what happened in there with mitt romney. as for david petraeus, i'm not sure he's under active consideration. but there was another general who recommended that trump look at him. but all very different views on things. >> in the meantime, cokie roberts, the president-elect facing more questions about his business and possible conflicts after that meeting with some indian developers who have real trump earlier this week. president obama talked about that yesterday in peru, and the president-elect under some pressure from members of congress as well on this front. >> and from ethics officers of republican as well as democratic administrations saying he's got to do something about these business interests. president obama said he put all of his holdings in treasury bonds and basically said to his staff, if it sounds like fun, don't do it.
7:11 am
have not been any scandals in his administration so far. donald trump's going to have a real problem here. he criticized hillary clinton for her foundation getting contributions from foreign companies, foreign countries. the foundation at least was doing good around the world. in this case, it would be a question of somebody trying to do business to try to get some sort of special favors from the government. that could be very, very dicey. >> okay, cokie roberts, martha raddatz, thank you very much. cokie, you'll be back. to talk about that "hamilton" feud coming up, but we're moving on now. breaking news overseas. authorities arresting at least seven people in a terror raid, concerned they were plotting an attack in france. our senior justice correspondent, pierre thomas, is here in the studio with us. what do you know here, pierre? >> reporter: robin, again, seven to eight people, afghan, french, and of moroccan descent. the concern was they were perhaps going to target a christmas celebration.

7:16 am
in the league this season. and maybe those churchgoers believed divine intervention had something to do with it. but guess what? it was a full house, so the church made the right call, and the cowboys won, 27-17. >> if you could see the reaction of the crew members. are you kidding -- oh, okay. >> i saw your reaction. this is robin. >> but they're there. they're in church. they get to watch football, too. i guess it's a win-win. all right. the latest now on that murder in manhattan where two men have been charged in connection wh killing a 26-year-old man. they're due to appear in court today. abc's linzie janis has more. >> reporter: this morning, the two suspects in the brutal slaying of 26-year-old joey comunale are being held on $3 million bond each. set to head to court later today where they could be charged with second degree murder. >> to do something like this to -- an animal, let alone a

7:18 am
shallow grave in new jersey, 55 miles away. >> james, why did you kill him? >> reporter: meanwhile, a grieving father is waiting for justice to be served. >> these guys need to pay for their actions. >> reporter: the two suspects have so far only been charged with crimes in connection with the murder, such as tampering with physical evidence, but prosecutors say one or both men will eventually be charged with second-degree murder. robin? >> so sad, thank you. back to ginger in syracuse. ginger? >> that's right. 24 hours left of lake-effect snow in this region. but you have to see this video from u of m over the weekend. so many people watching college football, and the football players taking advantage. doing some snow angels on the field. the cheerleaders getting in on the act. everybody starting to enjoy this first hit of winter. let's get to the select cities

7:32 am
sasha and malia. >> reporter: over the weekend, taking in those words. from actor brandon victor dixon, who addressed pence from the stage. >> we hope this show has inspired you to uphold our american values and work on behalf of all of us. >> it was important we did this, and i'm glad we had the opportunity, and stayed. he stayed and listened. >> reporter: sending trump to twitter. the cast and producers of "hamilton", which i hear is highly overrated should immediately apologize to mike pence. also taking to "snl" again. >> google, what is isis? >> reporter: kate mckinnon plays
7:33 am
conway. >> i wouldn't be president without you. >> i think about that every day. >> reporter: raising the real trump's ire. i watched parts of "saturday night live" last night. it is a totally one-sided, biased show. nothing funny at all. equal time for us? baldwin responded. with a flurry of several tweets offering the president-elect advice. there is no more equal time. now you try to be president and people respond. that's pretty much it. the actor finally ending with, i could go on. you want more advice, ca i'll be at "snl." criticism is a first amendment right. though it's had its consequences. >> just so you know, we're ashamed of the president of the united states. >> reporter: with that fateful line in 2003, the dixie chicks were abandoned by country music radio. with president george w. bush weighing in. >> they can say what they want to say. just because -- they shouldn't have their feelings hurt just because people don't want to buy
7:34 am
>> let's get more on this right now. cokie roberts is back, along with michael wolff. whose interview with stephen bannon is in the latest issue of "the hollywood reporter." and michael, let me begin with you. the campaign is over b , but th culture war isn't going anywhere. >> i think it will get more intense. more fun for everyone in some sense. >> fun? >> it's certainly fun for the president. i think that's exactly what's going on there. he is -- he is baiting the immediate just as he knows it will respond. >> that would suggest, cokie roberts, that it's not going to stop. more donald trump, even if some of his advisers want him to. >> oh, i think he's not going to stop. it's clear that he's going to keep up these tweets. but, honestly, it does show that he is thin-skinned. and, you know, back to vaughn meader, on ed sullivan's show imitating jack kennedy, we have had comedians imitating presidents, and how presidents
7:35 am
sense of who they are. george bush bringing dana carvey in to do his imitation of george bush. i always thought george w. bush was very lucky that will ferrell retired from ask "saturday nigh live" just before his presidency began. it goes with the territory, and donald trump has to understand that, because otherwise, he looks petty. >> he's going after hollywood. going after his opponents. yet steve bannon, his chief strategist, has deep ties in hollywood. also, yesterday, he met yesterday with ari emanuel, perhaps one of the biggest agents in hollywood. >> i think the president-elect has deeper ties into the media industry than any president, well, since reagan and kennedy. this is -- and i don't think it's thin skin. i think this is very calculated. >> you think it's strategic? >> this is the campaign he played. he is the president, in part, because he ran against the media, and i think from his point of view, it's let's keep
7:36 am
and cokie, perhaps he doesn't mind having people talk about this. >> i'm sure he likes it a lot. i think running against the media is one thing, however, and getting touchy about comedians is something else, and the "hamilton," question is i think relevant. i think vice president-elect pence handled that very well. said he liked the show and he was not at all insulted. said to his kids that when he was booed, that's the sound of freedom, and, you know, the booing makes me uncomfortable. i think it's rude, but i think the statement from the stage was completely appropriate because that's what theater is all about. it is a -- live theater is a place where ideas are batted around and confrontations exist. >> it's given people plenty to talk about. cokie roberts, and mike wolff. thank you very much. and watch "the view" today. at 11:00 a.m. eastern. brandon victor dixon, the "hamilton" actor who made the
7:37 am
board? i'll tell you what's coming up on the big board. dutchess sarah ferguson's bombshell decision. she's filing a million-dollar lawsuit over an undercover sting by a newspaper. plus, before you hit the skies for the holiday, we have all seen videos like this. is a rage on the rise? the incident that got 41 people kicked off a plane. we're back in just two minutes. kicked off a plane.
7:38 am
yaaaaaay!! it's winter. which means the mccaf? peppermint mocha is back at mcdonald's. buy any 5 mccaf? beverages and you get 1 for free when you use the mcdonald's app.
7:39 am
we welcome you back. we welcome you back. it's time for our big board. we're breaking down more of this morning's top stories. our moon -- man, dan abrams is here at the table with us. we're going to start with the duchess of york, sarah ferguson, seeking $30 million in damages. against rupert murdoch's suit. news group, and newspapers. the lawsuit revolving around a 2010 sting operation by an undercover reporter. dan, many people remember this. 2010, she was asked about her
7:40 am
andrew, and if she would gain access to him. and this is what she said. >> on to the next thing. 500,000 pounds when you can to me. open doors. >> it would be prince andrew? >> yeah. >> is that a deal? >> yeah. >> the handshake saying pretty much, i'll get you prince andrew. you get me money. this was years ago. why are we just hearing about it now? >> it was an embarrassing moment for her. the reason now is that reporter you see there, known in britain as the fake sheikh, because he would go undercover as a fake sheikh, is now serving time. in connection with one of his stings, he got into big trouble. alleged to have tampered with a witness. and so now you have a flood of other people coming forward, and finally getting their chance to get ba get back at this guy. this guy's been one of the most feared and reviled people for
7:41 am
and so now they view this as their opportunity to finally try to sue and get back. >> how strong of a case is it? rupert murdoch's lawyers say it's defective and embarrassing. >> here in the united states, there would be no case. right? you see her on tape. there's no case. it would be a no-brainer. as long as there was no other violation of law. in england, they're willing more to evaluate the quality of the journalism. part of the lawsuit talks about the way it was edited. that it was misleading and it misrepresented what actually happened. sorts of things you would never see in a lawsuit here. >> we have seen lawsuits here against the media have been succeeding. >> they have. they have. this one wouldn't in the united states. >> dan, thank you very much. up next, new warnings about air rage. as the holiday travel season kicks into high gear. we have the latest incident. 41 passengers -- excuse me. removed from a brussels flight over the weekend. david kerley back with more on that. and david, are these incidents actually on the rise, or are we
7:42 am
>> you know, george stephanopoulos. you're a smart man. i have the statistics to say that you are actually right. there are fewer incidents than there used to be. but this one overseas, i have never heard anything like this. 41 people taken off an aircraft at the same time. they were all from the same group. and it's rare. usually, it's one or two people. enough to i have the numbers here for you. over the last five years in the united states, we had 183 incidents down to 150, down to 145, down to 103, and then this year, halfway through the year, only 31 incidents. so yes, there are fewer, but we hear a lot more about them, george. >> and david, i know this is shocking. but alcohol may have played a role. i'm no expert here. but that is what they're saying. and now people are saying, should alcohol be banned on flights? >> there's always talk about that. yes, alcohol was involved with some of the 41 taken off board. this is the big issue. airlines, it's a revenue stream for them. but they also don't want an unsafe situation inside the
7:43 am
it's been tried before. flight attendants try to limit people. like, haven't you had enough? sometimes that's led to unruly passengers. it can be a bad mix. >> good luck on the ban. >> good luck with that. sometimes flying leads you to drinking. i like your travel outfit. very chic. i like that, dave. good look. good look. >> thank you. appreciate it. going to get on a plane now. no to an alarm ing about kids and junk food. the american pediatrics found children exposed to food advertisements consumed more calories even when they were not hungry. dr. jen ashton will weigh in on this. what are the indications, jen? >> here's the thing. this study found an association between what young children, preschool kids do, in this case, watching tv with food ads, and then what they consume. in this case, highly palatable foods.
7:44 am
speak for high-calorie, high-sugar, low-nutrient. this is about increased cued eating. and can what kids see prime the pump for behaviors later on that lead to weight gain. it's impossible to avoid these ads. this is very concerning. >> so what should parents do? >> well, look. first, as a mom, i remember these days. you are in control of what your preschool child watches or doesn't watch. you want to leverage that while you still can. you can't control a 15-year-old as easily. then, as a doctor, i think this study brings up again that mind-body connection. we know there's a part of the brain that gets really lit up when we eat high-sugar foods. and that pathway can be established very early in life, so remember that connection. and lastly, as a nutritionist, i learned, and this bears repeating, put that living color on your plate. don't watch it on the screen. the more color your children eat, the better your diet is. >> good advice. >> thank you. coming up, the biggest
